Watch for the increase of emotional tension this afternoon as the Moon and Saturn interact. Specifically the issues of duties and responsibilities and how they override or interact with other our expectations of each other. Conflicts today can easily blow out into full scale debates about values or moral codes of conduct. The Moon in Pisces can also emphasize a non verbal or instinctive level of action or way of handling something that Saturn takes issue with on principles, without looking carefully at the wisdom of the heart.
Encounters between feminine and masculine or rigid and soft ways of looking at something might also appear today. We may also see some level of discomfort on the physical or bodily levels, and we have to be especially careful of some flippant use of substances, food, or drugs in order to avoid taking responsibility for difficult feelings that might surface.
This transit is also wonderful for implementing a new habit, pattern, or routine that is rooted in the body and the needs of the emotional body, though it might not be easy and may require (as we spoke about yesterday) a kind of sacrifice.
As the Moon moves past Saturn and toward Venus by this evening, the mood and tone of the day shifts and things should become lighter, with an emphasis on beauty, harmony, adventure or expansion, and perhaps a general aura of learning and growth. The Moon/Venus square can also highlight the tension we feel between some very nurturing, biological or emotional need on the one hand and the need or desire for something more aesthetic, sensual, or artistic on the other. For example…while the Moon in Pisces is like a walk on the beach at sunset, Venus in Sagittarius might be more like an exerting run or an adventurous dive into the surf.
The way we find joy, happiness, love, beauty, and peace may find themselves somewhat at odds this evening, but this transit (in my own experience) is easier to figure out then a lot of others.
Enjoy the day, and remember that nothing good comes without making the time and space for it.
Prayer: Remind us…that principles aren’t how we spend our time…they are guides toward experiences that support, hold, and nurture our souls.
